A petition was filed against Isha Foundation’s campaign called ‘Cauvery Calling’. AV Amarnath petitioner stated that the Isha foundation is planning to plant 253 crores plants to save Cauvery River. The report states that the Isha Foundation is collecting Rs. 42 per tree planting from the public. That means the Isha Foundation is collecting a sum of Rs. 10,626 crores. Petitioner said that “This collection of money from the public is very disturbing”

The petitioner questioned the need for the Isha Foundation to collect money from the public for planting trees along the Cauvery River. 

The Karnataka High Court issued notices to the state government after a petition was filed questioning the 'Cauvery Calling' campaign launched by Isha Foundation, headed by 'Sadhguru' Jaggi Vasudev. The State Government has clarified that the 'Cauvery Calling' project, proposed by the Isha Foundation, is not the project of the state government.

In the petition, the petitioner seeks directions from the court to stop the Foundation from collecting money from the public for the project. 

He also mentioned some past incidents in which personalities like SaalumaradaThimakka and Jadav Payeng had planted trees in the state without collecting money from the public. 

The petition was heard on 25th August before which the Karnataka High Court got to know that the petitioner of this case has sent a legal notice to Discovery Channel to stop the telecast of the program on the project. 

On this information, Karnataka HC asked the petitioner whether he has sent a legal notice to channel or not.
